Many of the yarnies I listen to recycle yarn. They take the yarn from an old garment and give it new life. So when I realized the holes had become too big to patch, I decided to disassemble my sweater and use the yarn to make socks.
My sweater was knit in sections and then sewn together.
I've only unravelled the cuffs so far. I have three types of yarn as a result;
pieces that are long enough to wind into small balls,
teeny tiny pieces that could be stuffing, and
pieces that are somewhere in between.
I have a lot of unravelling left to do. Then I need to find a set of sock needles and a pattern to try. I would love recommendations for easy, first-timer sock patterns.
